COP26: World leaders meet to keep planet from heating drastically

(Worthy News) – Before a two-week United Nations climate conference started on Sunday, leaders from around the world had failed to set policies that would keep global warming “well below” 2 degrees Celsius — in continuing defiance of promises they made at a summit in Paris six years ago.

“The time has passed for diplomatic niceties,” said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a tweet ahead of a meeting of the G-20 group of big economies at the weekend. “If all governments — especially G-20 governments — do not stand up and lead efforts against the climate crisis, we are headed for terrible human suffering.”

In recent years, amid increasingly violent weather extremes and mass protests, climate change has been thrust into the political spotlight. But while the core science has been clear for half a century — burning fossil fuels releases gases that act like a greenhouse around the Earth, trapping heat and warping the climate — politicians have sidelined the problem.
